How to Raise Funds for a Freedom Lifted Trip

Don’t let lack of funds stop you from a trip of a lifetime!  Check out these resources for raising money for your tour fee.

Create a GoFundMe page and ask your friends and family to help you go on one of our unique educational tours to places like Alabama and Mississippi.  You will be surprised how happy they will be to help you learn more about this important history. You can also set up a page through Fundly or Indiegogo.

Teachers! You can apply for grants up to $5,000 from the Fund for Teachers. These grants encourage educators to design their own unique fellowships that support their efforts to develop skills, knowledge and confidence that impact student achievement. A Civil Rights tour is professional development for humanities teachers at its best!

Freedom Lifted is based in Chicago and many of our open registration tours begin in the Windy City. Chicago teachers can apply for professional development grants through the Chicago Foundation for Education.
